No more pressure cookers for Massachusetts

From the Dedham Patch:

Williams-Sonoma, the specialty retailer of home furnishings and gourmet cookware with over 250 stores in the United States, has pulled pressure cookers from their shelves following the Boston Marathon bombing.

“It’s a temporary thing out of respect,” said Kent, who is the Store Manager of the Williams-Sonoma at the Natick Mall.

No, Kent.  It’s more like an irrational thing out of idiocy (and an example of really poor taste in attempting to capture a little free advertising).
